It may be stressful to stay steadfast in solidarity with the oppressed but those on the front lines of resistance–Palestinians, Kashmiris, Indian Muslims, Syrians, Iraqis, Afghans, Yemenis, Somalis, Rohingya, Uyghur, Indigenous tribes & farmers opposing neoliberal plunder, & so many others–are the very hope of humanity. There is a holistic unity to their struggles as there should be a unity forged in solidarity with them.

They have not been targeted because they are weak links but because of their intransigent resistance to injustice, inequality, oppression. Solidarity is not a form of noblesse oblige. It is the iron law of social transformation not just for the oppressed but for all humanity.
